Fireblade is a flight simulation. In the game the player takes control of an advanced helicopter gunship as a part of the Fireblade taskforce, which in the arc of the games story is responsible for fighting terrorism. The enemies of the game are the United Eastern States, who are believed to be building terrorist training camps and factories for Weapons of mass destruction.
The game is similar in many respects to ThunderHawk: Operation Phoenix, however, in Fireblade the player is forced to be far less cautious unless on a stealth mission and is usually pitted against far larger amounts of enemies. The main element of the game is aggressively piloting the player's attack helicopters against large enemy armored formations and completing the main mission objectives, these vary in creativity from simply blowing up a bridge to aiding a special forces team in stopping a train by parking a truck across the tracks and stopping enemy troops from moving it.
